, a democratic consult and the who worked on the kerry and gore campaigns. special election coverage here on cnn begins right now. >>> it is up to the american people right now. good morning and welcome to our special edition of "early start." we have complete 4ri6 coverage of election day 2012. over the past 17 months we've watched two campaign spend a combined $3 billion, two candidates duel it out in three dramatic debates, all trying to win your vote. now more than 1 million campaign commercials later, 1 million campaign commercials later, the polls are opening. voting is beginning in parts of vermont. mitt romney not letting up on this election day. he's added two final campaign stops in cleveland, ohio and in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. both of them, of course, critical battle ground states. (is in chicago today. aides say he is likely to continue his election day tradition of playing basketball with friends before he goes to watch the returns. cnn reporters are fanned out all across the battleground states this morning, including in new hampshire. we have reports of the very first returns.
're watching a special edition of starting point and cnn's live coverage of election day 2012. the two candidates have been talking for about 17 months now and now it's the american people who will have the final say. these are the states with polls that are opening right now. state of delaware, state of florida, state of georgia, illinois, kansas, louisiana, maryland, massachusetts, michigan, missouri, pennsylvania, rhode island, south carolina, tennessee, and washington, d.c. you're looking at a live picture now from wilmington, delaware, where joe biden is expected to vote at any moment. the vice president then will head to chicago to watch the returns with president obama today. mitt romney is not letting up on this election day. he's added two campaign campaign stops today in cleveland, ohio, and in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. there are already legal issues that are plaguing two battleground states. state of florida, where there are more long lines yesterday, and democrats are suing to extend early voting hours, even though those early voting hours legally ended on saturday. then th
for us here at cnn tomorrow. for now, let's go to wolf blitzer in "the situation room." wolf? >>> happening now, a grueling and very tight presidential race entering its final hours with the candidates campaigning right down to the wire. we're watching all of their final rallies. we're going to hear from president obama in ohio in a little while. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> it's election eve in america. 26 hours to go until the first polls close. as voters pick the next president of the united states. and the unparalleled coverage we've brought you all through the campaign certainly continues today. our cnn correspondents are trailing the candidates. they're diving into the issues. they're talking to voters in every critical battleground state as we count down these final hours to election day. let's begin our coverage this hour, covering mitt romney, the republican nominee is campaigning his way up the east coast today. his latest stop, virginia with 13 critically important electoral votes. president obama took them in 2008. president bush took them
a break the no tax pledge. that is a hopeful sign, folks, because a new cnn/orc poll shows more than two thirds of americans believe a trip over that cliff would create major problems, perhaps even a crisis. cnn political editor paul steinhauser is live from washington, d.c. this morning. nice to see you, paul. so the fiscal cliff triggers back-breaking tax hikes and massive spending cuts. you've got more numbers that show what type of budget plan americans actually prefer. >> exactly. one of the big arguments, zoraida, is should it be all spending cuts to get us there or tax increases, as well? brand-new numbers just out from cnn/orc. only about one in three say whatever deal should be struck should be just spending cuts. but almost seven in ten, two thirds of americans say the plan should include spending cuts and tax increases. our poll indicates americans are not so optimistic a deal will get done and if it doesn't get done, who gets the blame? look at this right here, about 45% say republicans in congress will be blamed if there is no deal and the country falls off the fiscal cliff.
with us online here. you can follow us on cnn weather on twitter. we'll give you all the latest information. >>> president obama back at the white house. it wasn't the welcome that his staff had intended. they wanted to greet him on the south lawn. but the bad weather changed those plans. the first family took air force one then arrived at the white house by motorcade instead. >> the president's first order of business, avoiding the fiscal cliff. congressional leaders from both parties conceding the election with a call to compromise. what that comprise is, that hasn't been ironed out. w we'll get to what they said. >> the presidential vase over except in florida. the electoral votes are i will stun claimed. they're not make or break this time. president obama still holds a lead there. >> seven house races still up for grabs this morning across the country including the heated contest on florida's treasure coast between tea party republican allen west and democratic challenger patrick murphy. right now murphy does have a very slim lead of less than 2500 votes. but west not conce
with former mississippi governor haley barbour and cnn's dana bash. i'm candy crowley. this is "state of the union." >>> they are ships passing in the night and the day. this day mitt romney will be in iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia, while the president heads to new hampshire, south of florida, back up north to ohio, out west to colorado. monday romney goes to florida, virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. obama counters with wisconsin, ohio, and a closing rally in iowa. the biggest surprise in that final 48 hours is romney's last minute bid in pennsylvania. polls in the state favor president obama, but not by as much as they once did. the romney campaign calls it expanding the electoral map. the obama campaign calls it a fairy tale. welcome to the parallel universe phase of the campaign. joining me is chicago mayor and former white house chief of staff rahm emanuel. let me start by showing a poll out of pennsylvania showing that the president's numbers have been slipping since september, and it's now looking like a four-point race in pennsylvania, which is inside the margin of e
and started moving some of them to the hardest-hit areas of new york and new jersey. cnn administrator craig fugate says it's not clear yet what the total demand will be. >> and while the region recovers from sandy, for many people, those who lost everything in the storm, this doesn't feel like much of a recovery to them. cnn's susan candiotti is live in asbury park, new jersey this morning. we underznd stand that you have one family's story. >> that's right. you know, as you mentioned, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people in new jersey remain without power. and a lot of those people live in coastal areas, where people still are not allowed to go back home, because they have no power. but for a few hours a day, a few are able to go back and are being allowed to start the cleanup. we made an emotional return with one couple to a place called pelican island, new jersey. with sandy's storm clouds gathering, sue evacuated. but over her objections, husband bill stayed behind. it was traumatizing. >> rode out the storm until friday morning. friday morning i said i couldn't take any m
the second john boehner told him to. so again, what did tom cole do after "hardball"? he went on cnn three hours later and said exactly the same thing and when he was asked what reaction he is getting from his fellow republicans in the house, he said this. >> i think the reaction is mixed. some support it, some don't. some have more questions about it. >> that is as positive a reaction as he could have reported. there are 241 republicans in the house of representatives. the democrats need only 25 of them. to vote the way republican tom cole is now advocating that they vote. john boehner, very clearly wants at least 25 of his members to go the president's way now on taxes and he is very clearly happy to have congressman tom cole lead the what could be called the pro obama wing of the house republicans and solve this tax problem for the republican party. joining me now are msnbc's krystal ball and ryan grimm. kryst krystal, that house of representatives is a soviet style institution. the leadership has those people locked in, especially the traditionalists, the loyal soldiers like cole. boeh
that >> against -- >> john: we had him on cnn a few months ago. it is really remarkable. this guy is the first guy ever to parlay an entire career out of crashing a party and having his wife leave him for a guy from journey. hard to pull it off. >> it's wild. finally, the price of thanksgiving dinner is about the same as last year. according to the american farm bureau federation, you can apparently put dinner on the table for ten people for $49.48. that's for an 11-item menu including a 16 pound turkey, three sableds of sweet potatoes, cranberries and two pumpkin pies. >> john: $50 to feed a family of ten if you buy the cheapest at rate stuff. >> john: fortunately my 8-month-old doesn't know it is thanksgiving so it's pizza. >> really? >> john: i don't know. he could be grown and walking and talking by now. thank you very much, dan for the "full court press." i should explain how we got in trouble yesterday. we want to know your thoughts on israel and gaza. specifically, what do you think the u.s. government can
new information about what states have gone to what candidates. cnn is predicting governor romney will take oklahoma bringing him 240 electoral college votes. the president meanwhile, its projected winds and several new england states as well as others. maine has been projected for the president as well as (...) the main road island kinetic it is for the president, new hampshire is still a big swing state. it has not been called but the president also has vermont. in addition to the president has been projected to win washington d.c. right here. as well as illinois. no surprise there that is the president's home state. he is surging ahead of governor romney with the slough estates over here. this information is just coming into the newsroom and we'll continue to keep you posted on the latest numbers as we track the electoral college. >> crews are posted all along the bay area as people are opposed from san francisco to the east bay to the south. >> i stop by at city hall to see how the process so far there are no problems to report. there are no lines at city hall but there are a
for him last time? i mean, it's 5-5. did they move? i heard of a cnn poll that showed a tie. but then the dr, did you see it was 30% republican, 41% democrat, and it came out a tie. so they needed a plus 11 to get it a tie. does that mean anything? >> well, what the partisan identification balance turns out to be today is going to be one of the critical factors. this is another key disagreement with the two sides. democrats believe that when you look at the exit polls and see who showed up to vote, that there will be 4% or 5% who are democrats than republicans. in 2008, there were 8% more democrats. in 2004, when republicans had an especially strong turnout operation, it was level. >> do we know 2010? >> 2010 i believe had a slight democratic advantage. very slight. >> even though the drought come was so overwhelmingly -- >> well, we have strongly party voting, but not overwhelming. and it depends on the individual state. but republicans believe that the partisan identification balance today, romney campaign believes it will be about plus two for the democrats. >> independen
-star panel, republican pollster kristin soltis, elise jordan, charles blow and cnn contributor van jones. welcome to you all. let me start with you, charles blow. you were saying during the break, hard heart that you were, you weren't impressed by the president's tears. what's the matter with you, man? >> i didn't say i wasn't impressed by them. i just think i actually do believe that it shows a very human side of him that sometimes people knock him for not having. i think that it can be a difficult -- president is a difficult job. you have to walk a very fine line between being the kind of stoic commander in chief and also being an actual living, breathing human being and sometimes they say well, he can't get angry because he may be the angry black man or he can't show this kind of emotion because he might seem weak. actually, he's a human being. i think sometimes you got to catch that. this camera catches that. he's a full-fledged human being. that's a good thing. >> kristin, obviously he's not your man but did you feel moved by what you saw there? did you think mitt romney could ever
. that is finally here. the most expensive election to date. cnn took a look at the site em president obama has spent $931 million. mitt romney supporters as bet more than $1 billion. when all is said and done, as much as $6 billion may have been spent on this election. if you wear an i voted sticker, you can get a gree free baguette. that is the business ms. -- business news. >> 5:51 right now. >> it is cold outside now. >> a little hot chocolate this morning. it is cold. let's give you the goods. it will be great. overall outside of the chill. to dress for the weather. -- do dress for the weather. temperatures in the mid 40's. starting at 35 at reagan national. dew point of 25. will get a little brisk later on today. our temperatures in the west are generally in the 20's. freezing conditions. 29 at dulles. 28 and the gaithersburg. 25 in frederick. freeze warnings didn't affect all across the mucha area until 9:00 this morning. we do not have them into our western counties because the glass of already been down below the freezing mark. the cold air is filling all across the great lakes into th
. >> just to break in, one of the biggest swing states, nevada, abc and cnn have called that for president obama. this was not a surprise. the romney people were pessimistic about nevada, but it's just another example of how this very small map, surprisingly small map, is turning blue in state after state. >> right. again, and if as we keep trying to do throughout this night for our viewers on c-span2, folks at politico.com, is put all of this stuff in perspective of the things that we know on the presidential level, every single one of them has broken in the direction of the president. new hampshire, nevada, wisconsin, michigan, minnesota, pennsylvania. every state that was plausibly up for grabs has gone to barack obama. an important note on that, almost everything we're seeing is breaking the way that public polling suggested it would. there was a big debate over the last month about whether or not media companies cooked the books on polls or whether or not people are just missing something in the electorate. what i've always told people about polls and i think it's proving out true ton
hours ago i spoke with a cnn correspondent in jerusalem who says people on both sides want more than a temporary cease fire. >> all of this talk that is going to be this long or that long. they want a permanent solution. getting to that a very difficult thing to do. >> reporter: in the meantime people on both sides are willing now to settle for a period of calm until a cooler heads come up with a more lasting resolution. reporting live in the news room, rita williams. >> just go to ktvu.com and look in the video player list to view it. >>> federal officials say four americans from southern california trained at a paint ball range and plan to join al qaeda. they told the fbi that would be officially trained in afghanistan then participate in violent gee jihad. -- one of them served in the u.s. air force. the fbi says the men planned to depart this month. >> a man is under arrest accused of molesting girls and offering them marijuana. san rafel police arrested jason edward clar yesterday. he's accused of the continuous sexual abuse of two girls under the age of 11, also taking lewd pic
the cbs news and cnn apps both outstanding in terms of following results and getting them realtime. and the last one that's interesting is called settle it. it's an app that will let you figure out what the candidates really did and stood for and what their decisions were in their recent political history. they are all of us say i did this and that. you never know which is true. this may settle those bar bets. no did he this or that when he was in college or what have you. >> it's a factfinding of sorts about the backgrounds of the candidates. >> are there more apps? >> reporter: there are dozens. there are so many out there, but we like these because they are free. they work really well and they are available on the major platforms. >> all right. brian cooley, thank you very much. for more go to cbssf.com/mornings. >>> we are going to take a live look out in wisconsin where paul ryan is putting his vote in. we did see mitt romney earlier in belmont, massachusetts. but, of course, this is the vice-presidential candidate putting his vote in with his family apparently. >>> apple does
. despite that cnn is projecting the president actually picked up more than the 270 collect oral votes needed as far as the president goes. he will return to washington later today. >> reporting live from chicago i'm renee marsh back to you. >> mitt romney took to the stage late last night to concede that rise. he spoke briefly in a speech very different from the 1 hours earlier. more on the former massachusetts governor last words. >> in the early hours of election day he said he called president obama and the race was over. >> if i so wish that i have been a will to fulfill your hopes and leaving the country in a different direction. the nation shows another leader. so and and i join with you too earnestly pray for him and for this great nation. >> the move was a stark contrast to his announcement in june 2011. >> i believe in america and i'm running for president of the nine states. >> and to the crowd to welcome him on a last minute a election day trip to the critical state of ohio and pennsylvania. >> thank you for your work. you guys are families. thank you so much. >> neither st
for obama but a six more point democrats sampled than republicans. cnn had a tie and an 11-point more democrat. it was a 7-point more democrat than republican in 2008, cnn had it at 11 points and had it at a tie. we have too many polls, the precision they don't have, i'm a numbers guy. i like to see the votes. we know that president obama's margin has declined. if you take a look at the states, the battleground states where there's partisan registration, so you can actually track who is it who is voting early or applying for an absentee ballot. the democrats had a 11-point margin four juror four years ago, it's 5.5 today. 340,000 democrats voted early than republicans four years ago. they this year about 105 more democrats have turned out than republicans, which points to a very, very, very tight night. jon: as you well know these elections are won in the middle, democrats largely vote for their candidates, republicans largely vote for their candidate, and it's the independent voter that you have to convince t swing over to your side. where do you see the independent voter go. >> that
awards. use a regular guest hosts of the diane beam show on pbs and cnn and many other broadcast outlets. a native of wichita, kan. she received a bachelor's degree from northwest and journalism from columbia where she was a pulitzer fellow. she will be followed by vicki edwards to is electorate at princeton university's woodrow wilson school of public policy international affairs. .. great pleasure to be here with the four people for whom i have so much admiration and the wife quoted so much time and so many stories. i have i think a little bit of news which is i found out the title of the next book that is coming out between tom so you can figure out the 1992 book by renewing congress. it sounds pretty positive. 2000, the permanent campaign. okay maybe not entirely positive, but at least pretty neutral. six years later the broken branch. okay sounds a little careless. now it's even worse than it looks. the new book is run for your life. [laughter] after that they are going to be marching up and down holding up signs. [laughter] they take on many institutions in washington and elsewhere
will hear from you. we want to ask who you voted for and why and your reaction to the results. cnn a few minutes ago declared a hampshire for the president and its four key electoral votes. both with an eye on the electoral votes. this is the scene from the obama campaign headquarters in chicago. we are also in boston at romney headquarters. jill is on the phone, democrats, warren, pennsylvania. what was a light when he went to the polls today? caller: we vote in a very small town. i saw one of my former students. host: as the look of the results tonight, what do you think? caller: i see president obama all the way. as a teacher, this is fantastic. unions, we very strongly support president obama. host: jasmine from st. augustine, florida, republican line. caller: i voted early. this was my first year that i could actually vote. and i voted for romney. i voted for him because he is all about helping the middle- class and having small businesses. my fiancee and his father owned a small business. the democrats talk about how that are moving forward and i have not seen any forward progressi
't get talked about nbc, cnn or any of the networks. what he just announced as he can do a energy tax tomorrow and not have broken his word and energy tax of course whacking the middle class. he can raise income taxes on people a year from now, which is why what he wanted to do was kick out the bush rates for people less than 250 per year. he can't get -- and this is where you talk about dual mandates. were talking about marginal tax rates on higher income people and successful small businesses. that raises 400 alien. this other taxes in addition to rate increases he wants to include. he talks about the rates. over a decade. so he is $800 billion he plans to raise from higher income people. the size of the dead if he gets that in his budget, assuming he gets the tax hike, he raises a trillion dollars in debt over the next decade. so having solved less than 10% of the problem company then comes back and says that he was going to pay the 8 trillion? .the energy tax, which pours the treasury department has seven times people have been trying to subpoena the information. they don't want t
in there. happens to be on cnn at the moment and waiting for their candidate to come out but the candidate hasn't called the white house. or hasn't called the president yet to concede. let's check in with our popular vote now. this is the electoral college vote. president obama at 290, governor romney at 203. the race is over with a couple of states left to call. but would you look at this, this is the popular vote, 29,419,033 votes for mitt romney. 49,421,172 votes for barack obama. talk about a nation divided. let's check in now with ed henry live from the obama campaign in chicago. and carl cameron live from the governor romney campaign. most of our stations have been away with their local races and they've come back to us for national coverage. many of those local stations didn't hear is that as far as i know there's been no call of concession, no concession speech. what is the hold up? >> reporter: well we expect to be told immediately after that phone call is made and have not been told. there's been a level of radio silence from romney's senior staffers and there's good reason for i
" ♪ ] intelligence officials told cnn the intelligence community, not the white house changed the benghazi talking points given to susan rice. what is he -- he does not like the stand on this. director of national intelligence spokesperson said the only changes came from the intelligence community not the white house. as david petraeus just said. he keeps screaming about he's looking for answers. he gets them and he keeps screaming. >> those aren't the answers i want. i need better answers! >> stephanie: the original assessment of the benghazi attack was it was carried out by al-qaeda affiliated groups. he said that analysis was taken out after an interagency review in favor of a more general review that they did not tip off terrorists to u.s. knowledge of the matter. we already covered this. general petraeus and now other intelligence officials are just -- you know, making it even clearer. so let's see. john mccain, lindsey graham, blah blah, have accused the white house of stripping for political reasons. the director
has more voters is going to win. that is the best analysis cable news has done since the six-part cnn series, "bears, do they [ bleep ] in the woods." >>> welcome back to "cbs this morning." on this election day, we're looking at what could happen today and in the next four years. >> with us now are newt guy ritchie and dee dee myers. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> mr. speaker, before the hurricane you were predicting that governor romney would win in a landslide with over 300 electoral votes. do you think that's still true? >> well, i like your opening because i do think it comes down to turnout. i do think the guy that gets more votes today is going to probably win. so i thought that was good of you guys to package it like that. interestingly, michael barone and dick morris also agree, and karl rove is not quite as bullish, but he's close. i think that romney is going to win. i think that the presidents get the last poll number. he's at 47. obama is at 47. gallup, he's at 48. rasmussen he's at 48. that suggests to me somewhere between 51-49, which is i think where
the company's emphasis was on job creation told cnn, quote, we were in the business of creating value for investors. >> was job creation or making money the goal? >> well, every business is organized to create a return for the people who invest in the business. and as businesses are successful and profitable, they're able to hire people. and they can hire more people the more successful they are. businesses are created to provide a return to the owners or the investors. and it has a wonderful by-product. it employs more and more people. that's the nature of american enterprise. >> ten years into his run at bain capital, romney decided it was time to leave business for politics, just as his father had done. >> i will work very hard to make sure that everybody gets a good job. >> how are you feeling? >> energized, enthusiastic. >> romney's target, senator ted kennedy. not exactly starting at the bottom of the ladder there. >> i told my colleagues at work, don't clean up my desk or move into my office. i'll be spending time away from work, and it will be a leave of absence. but i really
: the worst kept secret in media is the official, jeff zucker of nbc universal has been named president of cnn world wide. lindsay lohan was arrested this morning in new york city after allegedly hitting another woman in a light club. use charged with third degree assault, misdemeanor. this is the latest in a long string of run ins with the law. the judge is here. he may or may not wish to comment on lindsay lohan. i will give him the opportunity. he may turn it down. judge napolitano: innocent until proven guilty. i would entering four years. stuart: that is it. now i give a real reason the judge is here. i am calling it a tax revolt. companies are paying big dividends to save on possible tax hits if they were paid later. 173 companies now pay a special 1 off dividends this year to beat the expected tax increase on dividends that could be coming next year. disney increasing its dividend paying this year, $1.3 billion, that is the payout. las vegas paying out $2 billion, a special one of shot. maybe the biggest of these is costco, free billion dollars, a huge payout. shareholders will a save a
comedians. i love the op-eds you do for cnn.com. i wanted to talk to with you about all of the issues going on this week. i guess that everything that we're talking about all began when the c.i.a. surveillance operatives misunderstood david petraeus when he first said i want to tap that. did you ever imagine that we would see a soap soap ra like this? it is like the jersey shore for rich people. people copulating left and right and these weird tampa socialites. i don't know where to begin. what's your take on petraeus gate? >> i think you're right on the head. jersey shore is going off the air. this is the perfect replacement. great show. it's got drama. it's got women fight. that's what you need. you have to get them a room. this internet stuff is no good. let's see the fight. if you're the c.i.a. director and you can't keep an affair secret, you should be fired. >> john: thank you very much. if you're in d.c. and anyone in d.c. who can't keep an extramarital affair secret does not deserve to run a spy agency.
